The 2020 Ann Arbor Jaycees Summer Carnival is canceled due to social distancing.
The Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival is an Ann Arbor tradition. It is held each June in the Pioneer High School parking lot. The Carnival includes rides, games, and food. For my daughter, the highlight of the Carnival is the rides. She has loved rides from the first time I took her at 1.5 years old.
She has been willing to try any ride since she was 4. I remember only her having the ride wristband and wanting to ride The Tornado. She barely made the height cut-off so we let her ride alone. After riding we discovered it was a 4 ticket ride, but she thought the 4 meant it was for 4 year olds.
2019 Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival
Skerbeck returns as the ride operator for the 2019 Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival. Ride wristbands are available for $22 for Wednesday and Thursday or $25 for Friday, and $27 for Saturday and Sunday. Advance sales are available through noon on Wednesday, June 19.
You can also pay for rides with tickets. Tickets are 4/$5 or 50/$50. Tickets may be a better bet for small children who are too short for many of the rides (and their rides use less tickets).
Note: The Top Gun ride requires a wristband and 4 tickets, or 12 tickets individually.

The Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival kicks off today and runs through Sunday. Get all the details on our event calendar. Thank you to the Jaycees for hosting our visit and the walkthrough. (Note please verify info at the link. I mispoke about the Sunday opening time – I said 9 instead of noon) https://annarborwithkids.com/events/ann-arbor-jaycees-summer-carnival-2/Note: the Carnival closed early on Friday night. From the comments by attendees it appears there were some fights among teenagers. I have added some comments to our review suggesting visiting earlier in the evening and not letting young teens attend a unaccompanied at night. https://annarborwithkids.com/articles/2018-ann-arbor-jaycees-carnival-review-2-2/
